About This Activity

Nash Community College's welcomes runners, walkers, volunteers, and sponsors to the 2nd annual Run for Knowledge. The event raises money for student scholarships and provides an opportunity for community members and visitors to enjoy the campus.

The 5K is part trail (approximately 1.25 miles) and part paved roads (approximately 1.85 miles). The first inner loop provides participants with a view of the campus buildings. Runners leave the road at about the halfway point to enter the scenic trail.

Testimonials from past participants include:

"Thanks for a great morning run. The course was definitely a challenge but a welcomed one. Hope to see you, again, next year!" Karen H., 2015 Run for Knowledge Participant

"The Nukao snack was delicious." Nancy W. , 2015 Run for Knowledge Participant

"Great job everyone! Big thanks to those responsible making this event a success! Tough course! Note to self: avoid hibernating next winter in order to prep for this event in 2016 :) " Jennifer W., 2015 Run for Knowledge Participant

"Awesome! Looking forward to next year."

"Let me congratulate you on a job well done. Enjoyed the course & can't wait to do it again...well maybe I can :) thanks for a great morning!" Sandra L., 2015 Run for Knowledge Participant

Kids off all ages are then invited to participate in a one mile fun run/walk. Participants will leave from the starting line in front of the Continuing Education Building and continue on paved roads for half a mile to the turnaround point and will retrace their steps past the amphitheater and fountain. Strollers are permitted for the one mile event.
